Whois Privacy Protection, at times also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact info of domain owners on WHOIS check web sites. Without such protection, the personal name, address and email of any domain name registrant will be openly visible. Giving false information during the domain name registration procedure or altering the genuine info subsequently will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing their ownership of the domain name. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS information must be valid and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by registrars as a response to the growing concerns for possible identity theft. If the protection service is enabled, the registrar company’s contact information will be listed instead of the domain registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are some country-code ones that don’t.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through us is extremely easy if you have a Linux cloud website hosting service. You can achieve this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you will simply need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – if you wish to transfer a given domain name to some other registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact details with only a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthorized persons.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Enabling Whois Privacy Protection for any domain is extremely easy in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain is registered with our company, it will be listed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated plan. If a given generic or country-specific domain supports Whois Privacy Protection, you’ll see a mini icon to the right of that domain. To enable the service, you will have to click on it. In the exact same way, you can also renew or remove the service. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name upon registration too, but since the Whois Privacy Protection service is optional, we’ll give you the chance to add it to any of your domain names later in case you think things over and choose to conceal your personal details from the general public after you’ve already created the account.
